Back to Work!

It looks like our lives are finally going to be settling down a bit -- Hooray! :) Jordan started work yesterday for We had a bit of a hard time making the decision, but it's obvious that this is pretty much Jordan's dream job. He gets to work at home, program in his favorite language (Ruby, Jordan's second love), and work with some great guys on some super fun new things. He got to start working yesterday afternoon and this morning, he woke up at 4:30 because he was just so excited to get back to it!

The company is based in New York City, so we are going out there for a week or two near the end of the month so Jordan can get to know everyone face-to-face and such. I'm excited that they are paying for Landon and me to go out with Jordan, because I would miss him terribly, but I'm a bit anxious about being on my own in New York with a rambunctious toddler while Jordan is working! But, it should be a great and memorable adventure. :)

Here's what Animoto does -- you upload pictures and music to their site and then they have a program that tries to match up the beat and tempo of the music w/ your pictures to make a cool little movie like this one:

Try it out sometime when you have a minute - it's pretty fun. :)

"Somebody's Woofing!"

Lately, whenever Landon hears an unexpected noise, it's "Uh-oh, Somebody's knocking!" It doesn't matter what it is -someone knocking on the door, the phone ringing, a loud car driving by... Yesterday though, we were going for a walk and some dogs in a yard up ahead started barking pretty loud and Landon said, "Uh-oh! Somebody's woofing!" :)
